This film is well, fantastic. The actors do an outstanding job and the pace of the film is really good and doesn't felt dragged out in any parts and its directed by my favourite director, Stanley Kubrick.

Superb film.

Scarface (1983)
This movie was so intense the first time I saw it, but at the end I felt Al Pacino delivered a wonderful performance in an overall fantastic film.

This is one movie that is really something special and I thought when I first saw it, I was terrified of the Terminator character as a child, the first scene I remember seeing is when he gouged his eyes out into the sink.

Beetlejuice (1988)
Micheal Keaton gives an excellent performance in this movie, though he doesn't get much screen time and this movie was wacky and watching it as a child I loved this movie a bunch.

Rocky IV (1985)
This movie for me gets me really pumped, particularly during the training montage and I think though its finish is a tad predictable and alike to the previous films that it delivers another fun story and I find its always good for a watch.

This movie was over the top and hillarious and I felt sympathetic towards John Candys character and think him and Steven Martin played really well off one another.

Such an inspiring film for me, but unlike Rocky IV I could really relate more to Daniel, I love all three of the films, but feel this one is definately the best and its a real good watch.

I first saw this movie in primary school and fell in love with it and how different it was to every other childrens story out there and I still enjoy it as much as a child and can watch it over and over.

The end scene of this movie, is just wow, no words to describe it but this movie is absolutely brilliant and the final scene made car action scenes more interesting for me, then any other movie possibly has.

The Lost Boys (1987)
One of my favourite Vampire movies, though I haven't actually seen the Lost Boys 2, I haven't been hearing too many good things about it, I love this one however and think its a new take on the vampire.

Not my favourite James Bond movie, but certainly one of the better Roger Moore ones, I definately like Christopher Walken's role and think it is a decent movie.

Micheal J. Fox is amazing to me, I love his movies and find him to be a real inspirational person and this particular movie was one I was very fond of watching growing up, along with watching back to the future.

A list of majority of my favourite films from the 80's, any that I forgot, simply slipped my mind, but these are the ones I own and are most memorable for me when I think of movies from the 80's. E.T isn't here, but thats because I don't own it.
